When it comes to keeping fit, most people associate the term to lose weight. But this is not so easy as it sounds, and if we do not set goals or regular changes in our lifestyle, we`ll end up frustrated and give up.
So if you are thinking about losing weight, you have to provide goals. You must be very careful not to set unrealistic goals! The aim is to feel good and be healthy! Do not think about losing 5 kg in a week because it is completely unrealistic!
To find out if you are within the appropriate weight for your height the best way is to calculate your BMI (Body Mass Index). This index is obtained by dividing weight by height squared (BMI = weight in kg / height 2 in meters).
If your BMI is:
Less than 18.5 - are underweight for your height;
Between 18.5 and 24.9 - have a normal weight;
Between 25 and 29.9 - overweight;
More than 30 - have obesity, weight is too excessive for height
When you start to "work" to lose weight, it is essential to keep control of it. But throughout the process have to be aware that the weight is also influenced by factors not under our control (level of hydration, the phase of the menstrual period, etc.), and it vary throughout the day.
For this reason, it is best to begin to weigh yourself only once a week, always on the same scale, and at the same day (eg: every Friday after waking up).
You can then help you build a chart where you will note the relative weight each week, in order to evaluate your progress. Do not focus on the value itself, but in evolution that you are watching.
